An Epiphone Icon: Hailed by blues legend John Lee Hooker as "an out-did 335," the Sheraton has been renown for decades for its combination of superior tone and beautiful pearloid and abalone inlay. Originally released in 1959, the inspiration for the "thin-line" or ES series has its roots in Les Paul's first solidbody guitar, "The Log," that Les built in Epiphone's factory in Manhattan in 1940.

After a long list of used and new Epiphones I wanted to try a 335 type and got a great deal on a new Sheraton ll Pro in Ebony. Took awhile to get comfortable with the pickups and the size of this guitar but now it will be a permanent keeper. I finally bought two Gibson's, a 2015 vintage sunburst Les Paul Special Double Cut with P90's and a 2018 Les Paul BFG with P90's. Both great guitars but I needed a full humbucker guitar and found this one. It really sounds great and is well made. Feels like a more expensive guitar and I'm glad I own one now. Sounds unique compared to my other P90 guitars and I like the variety of the coil taps. Recommended!!!
